Now at Ceres, Dawn'scamera recorded this closer view of the dwarf planet's northern hemisphere and one of its mysterious bright spots on May 4. A sunlit portrait of asmall, dark worldabout 950 kilometers in diameter, the image is part ofa planned sequence takenfrom the solar-powered spacecraft's 15-day long RC3 mapping orbit at a distance of 13,600 kilometers (8,400 miles).The animated sequenceshows Ceres' rotation, its north pole at the top of the frame.Imaged by Hubblein 2004 and then by Dawn as it approached Ceres in 2015, the bright spot itself is revealed to be made up of smaller spots of reflective material that could be exposed ice glinting in the sunlight. On Saturday, Dawn's ion propulsion system was turned on to spiral the spacecraft into a closer 4,350-kilometer orbit by June 6. Of course anotherunexplored dwarf planet, Pluto, is expecting the arrival of a visitor from Earth, theNew Horizons spacecraft, by mid-July. PIA195471
